Ferrari 430 Scuderia wrecked in Autobahn crash image

An unlucky 41 year old man managed to crash his Ferrari 430 Scuderia last Saturday, while he was going towards Berlin on the German Autobahn A9.

Wherever there will be exotic cars, there will always be exotic car crashes and this latest example highlights the case. According to police reports, a 41 year old man was going towards Berlin last Saturday afternoon when he lost control of his Ferrari 430 Scuderia, the result being a mangled piece of burned metal with just about every panel on the supercar being destroyed. Police said that the driver was unhurt but his 17 year old son, who was in the car with him, suffered a small hand injury.

As a reminder, the Ferrari 430 Scuderia is the successor of the Challenge Stradale, and the name “scuderia” is being translated as “stable of horses”. The 430 has been officially presented to the public at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show by Michael Schumacher and it’s been developed to compete with cars like the Porsche RS-models and the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera. The Ferrari 430 Scuderia is more powerful than the standard F430, developing a total output of 508 HP at 8.500 rpm, being also lighter by 100 kg or 220 lb.
